First Disney Visit

For our needs, it was great. We arrived in the late morning and were able to check into our room right away. Hotel is convenient to the parks and we enjoyed swimming in the afternoon. The breakfast is generous considering it is complementary. Overall, we would return.

More than expected

The hotel is older, and a bit of a walk to the park. However, I wasn't expecting such pleasant professional and friendly staff. The hotel is very clean and we observed staff cleaning the common space thoroughly. The extra touch of fruit infused ice cold water, in the lobby was refreshing. The included breakfast was sufficient and the smiling friendly staff helped out if needed. Enjoyed our stay!

Clean, close to Disney

This hotel is clean and it is an easy walk to Disney. The furnishings are noting special if that is what you are looking for, this is not the hotel. It will provide you with a clean comfortable bed and clean bathroom. The room did come with mini fridge and microwave as well as parking was included.

Great value and location!

The kitchenette room was perfect and very clean. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Even though our room was along busy Katella ave the shuttered windows gave privacy. The breakfast room and terrace on the 5th floor was a very nice way to start the day. Pool was quite small but never seemed to get crowded. We would definitely stay again.

Great location for Disneyland!

Our family (3 adults and 4 kids) stayed at this hotel because it offered a free hot breakfast and was within walking distance of Disneyland. When we arrived we were offered a larger room for the same price and free roll-away beds. :) Our stroller wheel broke and we asked if we could borrow a hammer to fix it. The maintenance guy came to our room immediately and fixed the wheel himself. :) The breakfast is okay, nothing great. We were there for several nights, so having some different options would have been nice instead of basically the exact same thing each morning. The pool was fine although a bit deep for kids under the age of 5 who don't swim. They couldn't play in the pool without someone holding onto them. Free parking was another benefit! And it only took us about 15-20 minutes to walk to Disneyland.

Do NOT eat at Captain Kidd's buffet outside the entrance to Disneyland. It was terrible! There are many other good restaurants within walking distance, nobody needs to eat at Captain Kidd's!

Great Family Hotel

Nice location within walking distance to Disney/Downtown Disney and many restaurants. Also a 7-11 right next door. Rooms were nice and free breakfast was great. Free Parking and Wi-Fi was a plus too! Staff was very accommodating. I would definately stay there again.

Disneyland trip

Good location, just a short 10 to 15 min walk to Disneyland maingate. No parking fee. Room was just ok. Beds and pillows weren't comfortable but the ac was decent. Bathroom had some mold which is terrible no mater where you're staying. Breakfast was included but after we tried it the first day we decided not to even try to eat there again. It was terrible. No meats at all and nothing tasted good. What we saved in the room was used to eat somewhere else. Overall the room was ok if you're on a budget but won't return there again.

Perfect for family vacation!

My husband and I brought our 3 kids here to go to Disneyland. I loved that there was a separate area for the kids to sleep, with a glass door that could be shut for privacy. The kids area had a bunk bed and sleeper sofa as well as their own tv. I also really liked that the room had a refridgerator, microwave, and in room safe to use. At first I didn't like that our bed was right as you walked in the room but then I realized I liked that so our little one would have to get past us to get out the door. Of course the pool was a plus. And the continental breakfast was great and went until 10am so we didn't have to get up early after having a late night. Bed comfort is also a big thing for me and the bed was pretty good, not as good as mine at home but I was able to sleep fine. Overall I loved it. We'll definitely be staying there again!!!!
